FT United States 2-1 Canada
[Hejduk 40, Donovan 45pen; Hume 76]
Hutchinson scores the equalizer for Canada in the fifth minute of
injury time, but the play is called offside for no particular reason.
I guess the bigsoccer thread where people claim that we always get
screwed by the CONCACAF refs will only be 50 posts instead of 200 this
Bradley had been sent off in the 89th minute for a tackle from behind
on De Guzman. Hejduk will also be unavailable for the final after
picking up a yellow. I think we can live without them :)
Despite our good record on paper, the defense hasn't inspired any
confidence at all...I wish Bradley would give some of the other guys a
chance. We'll get lit up at Copa America.
